Default WTB: 2U chassis

I have been looking at a chassis from Par-metal. The 10-19143x chassis. It's a 2U high (3.5"), 17" wide (19" face plate), by 14" deep chassis. However after shipping and customs fees I suspect the final price to be nearly CAD$150. If anyone has a chassis with about the same dimensions that they would like to get rid of, that would cost me less than $150 including shipping, please let me know. Thanks!

Ask them to post it with USPS.

The chassis is 62$ usd + 20-30$ usd for postage = 82-92$ usd (94-105$ Cad). not bad.

If you are lucky, chance there is no custom fee.

Thank you for your response. 11.5" deep is the absolute bare minimum I can use. However, after shipping and customs fees come into play I don't know if I'll really be saving much over ordering from Par-Metal direct. Maybe I should just give in and order the Par Metal chassis...

Yea, I think this may be the way to go, and pray there is no customs fees. Customs fees on this item when shipped with UPS is an additional $20, or about 30% the cost of the chassis, which I'd really like to avoid.

Hi DcibeL,

Supremetronic in Toronto has (had?) various steel/aluminum
cases in the $40-60 CAD range. Their selection isn't
as good after their move to their current location.

http://www.supremetronic.com/

You may want to email them to see if they have anything
suitable.

Cheers,
Dennis

Hey DcibeL,

Did you hear back from Supremetronic?

I wandered by there yesterday and saw a
bunch of cases around 40 to 45 each
(pretax). Specifically, there were 17" x 12" cases
(19" front panel) in 4" and 5" heights. Didn't
check if they're in stock though.

Cheers,
Dennis
